Provides an extensive cross-sectional analysis of all the physical and virtual entities that underpin Software Defined Data Infrastructures.
Lots of effective related graphics and diagrams to support each section.
Wraps up with a summary of how all previous chapters map into SDDI and associated deployment considerations.
Greg has demonstrated his exceptional detailed technical knowledge and "in-the-trenches" industry experience in his book.
As a leading data storage specialist and consultant of some 35 years I highly recommend Greg's new book to anyone looking for a single reference to develop new knowledge or build on their existing knowledge of data storage principles and how they are positioned and integrated into Software Defined Data Infrastructures.
5 Stars, "excellent value for money" - Colin Berrell - StorageAdvisor.IO
The book is not only a fundamentals course in software defined data infrastructure (such as learning about blocks and blobs, scaling servers and the like), it also drills right down and goes into detail about decision making, hybrid infrastructures, and usage.
Because this is one of the most up to date resources on the topic even seasoned professionals are going to learn something new here. In short, it’s for beginners starting out, through to people who define and implement software infrastructures as a part of their job. People in the middle there somewhere will also get great value.
If you are looking for a comprehensive resource to help wrap your head around software defined data structures, this is it. If you’re trying to understand why you’re running your code in containers, want to create your own cloud data center, or just want to bone up on the latest in SDDI, then this book is for you. It’s got plenty of diagrams to break text up, actionable items, and a slew of tools outlined to add to your toolbox.
